Empathy and Understanding in Ithaca – Better Angels 

Empathy and Understanding in Ithaca – Better Angels  | Network Leadership | Scoop.it

Sharpening differences” and“listening to understand”
By DANA LACROIX

On a sunny Saturday in Ithaca a group of 7 Democrats and 7 Republicans came together for a day, pulling their political opinions off the internet or out of the closet to engage in face-to-face conversation. The session was led by Better Angels moderators Bill Doherty, David Blankenhorn and David Lapp.

I think it’s fair to say that we were all a little trepidatious in the beginning and uncertain of what to expect but it was equally clear that we were all united in our desire to communicate. 

We spent the next 8 hours engaged in what was essentially a communication workshop. The structured conversation and small group exercises were peppered with coffee, lunch and snack breaks which gave us an opportunity to have one-on-one conversations and get to know each other on a more personal level.

“Usually people think a question is something to get an answer for, and that’s what we do. You have a question, so you find the answer….But the most powerful questions don’t move us towards a point. They open us up into a space….The more powerful a question is, the more it leads us in directions where we discover new understandings and new possibilities.  It draws your attention into a place where you actually might make a breakthrough.”  From the Powerful Questions Pattern, Tom Atlee, Wise Democracy Pattern Language

Re-humanizing the Workplace through Collaboration as Leadership: A Bold Idea Coupled with a Modest Approach | LinkedIn | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
The foundational premise of Collaborative Leadership is that if you give people good tools, appropriate facilitation, and adequate time, they can work together to solve even the most complex challenges. It’s a bold idea that we’ve coupled with a modest approach based on a simple tool called Collaborative Conversations. Collaborative Conversations maps out the four different kinds of conversations required for any group to define a mutually desired future and then plot a course for successfully creating that future.

A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Awareness

A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Awareness | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
The vast majority of people — up to 95 percent, in fact — believe they have a decent amount of self-awareness. And maybe you’re one of the lucky 10 to 15 percent who really does have an accurate view of themselves — but if we’re going by the numbers, well, the odds aren’t in your favor.

Those statistics are based on years of research from psychologist Tasha Eurich, author of the book Insight. “On a good day, 80 percent of us are lying to ourselves about whether we’re lying to ourselves,” Eurich says. Making things extra tricky is the fact that self-awareness has two components: Internal self-awareness is the ability to introspect and recognize your authentic self, whereas external self-awareness is the ability to recognize how you fit in with the rest of the world. “It’s almost like two different camera angles,” Eurich says.

The two are independent, entirely different variables, meaning you can have one without the other. For example, maybe you know someone who is a complete navel-gazer with a high level of internal self-awareness. Yet you and everyone else think this person is a selfish jerk, but because he never receives external feedback, he has no idea. Conversely, someone could have a high level of external self-awareness, a clear understanding of how they fit in with the rest of the world, without knowing what they want and what makes them happy. To be truly, fully self-aware, though, you need both components — a feat that’s difficult to pull off for pretty much anyone. But, it’s worth noting, not impossible.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 11, 5:00 PM
Mindfulness and being present make a difference. When we are attentive to another person, we show we care for them in more than a superficial manner. In that moment, they are the most important person.

Being self-aware and present made a difference in my teaching.

Self-awareness is being aware of how we are reacting and responding to the world, animate and inanimate.

First, adaptive and distributed leadership are critical for philanthropy to solve complex and ever-changing community problems. In this case, a cross section of philanthropic leaders worked without a script, hashing out a final agreement that ended the bankruptcy and set a new course for the city.

Second, relationships and networks must be leveraged for collective action to occur. In Detroit, old and new relationships within and across sectors allowed leaders to move quickly to the different tasks at-hand – whether it was getting consensus in the boardrooms or working to hammer out the details of how to structure funding and implement reforms to assist Detroit as it emerged from bankruptcy.
